Hero Update 3

I have finished writing the narrative for the third section of HERO FROM THE SEA, again a bit over 15,000 words, bringing me to a total of around 47,000 so far. One section to go.

All according to plan, somewhat to my amazement. We leave our heroes marching north to battle at the end of this section. Obviously, they will fight early in the next one, followed by — well, other stuff. No giving it away, folks!

I might take a short hiatus to recharge — and ponder plot elements — before tackling the last part. My sore neck tells me I should. I think my feet are swelling a tad too from sitting so much. And the weather outside is mighty nice. Who knows how long that will last?

Happy enough with what I have written so far and expect to remain that way. No writer's block here — I have more ideas than I know what to do with, most of the time. Yeah, I know, that doesn't mean they are any good!

With all this sitting and writing I never got around to recording something for the “Florida Song” competition at the Will McLean Festival this spring. Honestly, I don't like the idea of awards and competitions anyway. They are quite meaningless (but, admittedly, good publicity). I might or might not get down to that gathering this year. It's fun but rather far.

And my niece isn't performing this year, nor at the Florida Folk Festival (she'll be on tour in Europe). We'll see how that all goes. I haven't planned next week, much less next year.

Oh wait, next week is next year. (Okay, that was an obvious gag.) And chances are, I'll be back in this chair, churning out the last section of HERO FROM THE SEA!
